Star Wars Underworld has a source who reports that a three-year deal has been signed with Disney for Episode VII to shoot in New Mexico. A production office will open there in January.
We’ve had a variety of rumors taking New Mexico in and out of the equation for the film. The state was first rumored to be a location by local blog Sindication. They still maintain that it’s happening, so there’s plenty of smoke here… But is there any fire? Stay tuned… If there really is a deal in place, we could conceivably hear something soon.
